Rain, a very famous singer in Korea in the early 2000s, released a song called “GANG” in 2017. However, the song was ruined by public criticism.
The reason was that although his dance was very good, the lyrics were so cheesy and straightforward. And the times were changing rapidly, and in Korea, idols came up. He is now the head of the agency, but at that time he was a losing star.
But in 2020, something crazy happened. The number of views in his GANG music video began to explode. A high school girl parodied it and suddenly caught the eye, and people began to come over and over again, shouting out “One GANG a day.”
The comment box in the music video is a big festival of humor. There were so many witty and funny comments, and people gathered more explosively. The number of views, which was initially 5 million, is now surpassing 15 million in a short period of time.
The period of self-isolation increased during the Corona, so people watched more, and parody videos exploded. It’s a lot.
Nevertheless, there has been no response from the singer himself for a long time. However, he appeared with famous MC Yoo Jae-seok in May 2020, accelerating the trend even more. Accepting criticism and responding leisurely with humor have attracted a great deal of people. There are a lot of responses that say, “He’s a big man.”
Then, his juniors even made the official parody music video. Even the RAIN appears here. I personally like to hear this song. And he’s taking this opportunity to appear on so many TV shows and YouTube. There is no one in Korea who doesn’t know RAIN & GANG these days. I hope this information is helpful.
